Next-generation Chevrolet Cruze to be built in Mexico

By ,

Thanks to a $350 million USD investment by General Motors, the Ramos Arizpe assembly plant in Mexico will start producing the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze. The Lordstown, Ohio plant will remain active, while those in Russia and Australia will no longer build the Cruze.

Ramos Arizpe is where GM currently manufactures the Chevrolet Sonic and Cadillac SRX. Over the past 34 years, the facility has assembled a number of Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Pontiac, Saturn, Opel, and Saab models.

Roughly 87% of total production capacity at Ramos Arizpe is allocated to global markets including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Columbia, the European Union, Korea, the U.S., Japan, China, and Russia.

Further production details about the new Chevrolet Cruze, both in Mexico and in the U.S., will be announced at a later date.
